Чтобы иметь качественный сон в часы «цзы-ши», необходимо заснуть до наступления 23:00. Иными словами, нужно лечь спать уже в часы «хай-ши».
Это не только поможет вашему организму хорошо отдохнуть, но и будет способствовать зарождению новых жизненных сил, т.е. стимулировать приток «ян»-энергии и подпитывать «инь»-энергию.
«Инь»-энергия и «ян»-энергия не существуют по отдельности: отношения между ними характеризуются взаимопорождением и взаимопреодолением.
Ночью человек обязательно должен высыпаться, потому что ночной сон подкрепляет «инь»-энергию. Только в таком случае у него появляется достаточно «ян»-энергии для нормального функционирования в течение дня.
К сожалению, в наши дни люди много работают и мало отдыхают, это приводит к излишнему расходованию «ян»-энергии при недостаточном подпитывании «инь»-энергии.
Тем самым нарушается нормальная циркуляция энергий, и внешне здоровый организм начинает давать внутренние «сбои».
В часы хай ши люди завершают дела и готовятся ко сну. Можно немного почитать, чтобы успокоиться и обеспечить себе хороший отдых.
Спокойное настроение помогает быстро заснуть. В 22:30 лучше всего уже быть в кровати.
Самым главным является приведение своего образа жизни в соответствие с активностью работы основных меридианов и органов человеческого организма, а также сохранение баланса между «инь»-энергией и «ян»-энергией в течение суток.
Старайтесь прислушиваться к своему организму и следовать естественному порядку вещей.
